10:14 EDTCATAnalyst says buy Caterpillar, Joy Global before mining bottoms
The shares of Joy Global (JOY) and Caterpillar (CAT) are climbing after research firm Baird analyst Mircea Dobre upgraded both names, citing a potential bottom in commodity prices. Both companies develop mining equipment. WHAT'S NEW: In a note to investors earlier today, Baird's Dobre upgraded Joy Global and Caterpillar to Outperform from Market Perform. There are signs that the worst of the downturn in commodity prices may have passed, the analyst stated. Additionally, the shares of both Caterpillar and Joy Global historically bottom three to five quarters before mining equipment shipments rebound, according to Dobre. Consequently, investors who wait for evidence of a turnaround in the companies' mining equipment bookings may be late to the party, the analyst warned. Both stocks have now underperformed the market by amounts that are similar to their worst underperfomance during the early 1980s commodity bust, according to Dobre, who raised the price target on Caterpillar to $101 from $80 and on Joy Global to $62 from $45. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Joy Global climbed nearly 4% to $43.64 and Caterpillar rose 1.5% to $88.60.

09:56 EDTAAPL, SSNLFIDC: Apple leads smartphone vendors in China during Q1
IDC’s latest Mobile Phone Tracker shows the China smartphone market contracted by 4% year-on-year with 98.8M units shipped in the first quarter of 2015. This is the first time in six years that the China smartphone market declined YoY as the market continues to mature. On a QoQ basis, the market contracted 8% on the back of a large inventory buildup at the end of last year. The study said Apple (AAPL) was the top smartphone vendor in China in the first quarter, with consumers still having a strong appetite for the larger screens on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Xiaomi slipped to the second position as it faced strong competition from other vendors in the low to mid-range segment of the market, while Huawei maintained third position as it saw a good uptake in the mid-range segment. Samsung (SSNLF) and Lenovo (LNVGY) both led the market at least once last year, but rankings have since changed quickly, highlighting the volatility of consumers' brand preference in China.
